I understand that the OP may not want anyone's opinions on his current setup. I apologize for giving my opinion as I thought that's what he was looking for. Nevertheless, I don't regret giving it. If I see something wrong, whether I'm right or wrong, I feel it is my duty to try and help especially if it's something that is as public as the roads. If I'm corrected, then I consider it something new that I had to learn.

Here is some good towing related material.

It's sad. It's also why forums are dying in general. I was on a beginner motorcycle forum and the same bullying mentality is so prevalent there that the forum has 1/10 of the posts it used to. It used to be dozens, hundreds of posts a day. Now if it hits ten I'm surprised.

So long as it's allowed to go on, it will go on. All because from behind a keyboard it's really easy to beat someone up.
Dogpiled? It sounds to me folk were trying to help. What has this country become where you can't disagree with what you see a public forum.

I didn't see any "bullying" going on. That word is so overused these days that it's lost it's original intent. A mutual disagreement isn't "bullying" at all.
Now we have to be careful what we say or the KGB will get ya! LMAO

I don't disagree- but it's a lot more helpful if you "Report" a post rather than just post to the thread. Reporting it is certain to get the moderators' attention.

Cool. Don't quite see the point in posting your comment to the thread then. But, as long as it is reported - it gets the right eyes on it.

I don't understand you guys. There was no use of foul language, racism, etc. Just folk giving their honest opinion on what they thought was unsafe. Why are a few of you being so sensitive. Maybe this has been beneficial to the OP and others. I've received replies on posts from some members that were uncalled for, but who cares. We are all adults here, are we not?
